Matisse at the Legion of Honor

  • Mar 1, 2014 · 10:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Celebrating the Bay Area’s long standing enthusiasm for Henri Matisse, Matisse from SFMOMA traces four decades of the artist’s career—from his early, Cézanne-inspired still lifes to his richly patterned and brightly colored figural paintings made in the 1920s and 1930s.

This intimate exhibition features 23 paintings, drawings, and bronzes from the internationally acclaimed collection of works by Matisse at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), joined by two paintings and two drawings from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s own important Matisse holdings. [Edited from press release]

If you've missed the paintings of Henri Matisse at the MoMA since closed for remodeling here's the opportunity to see them again plus a small exhibit of his illustrations for books done later in his life. The museum's entry fee is reduced compared to a special exhibit fee and it'll be less crowded meaning it'll be easier to view. Join us for a relaxed museum meetup with time to socialize at the museum cafe. Afterwards, you'll be free to return to the exhibits. 

Meet inside the museum per final details at 10:45, tour the exhibit from 11-1p; lunch at cafe 1-2p. 

Legion of Honor General Admission: Adult $10; Senior (65+) $7 http://tickets.famsf.org/public/show_events_list

    I agree, Digne. We had a fun time. It was a small exhibit but really a good one and I enjoyed the Museum, Digne and the Café.

    I never got any information either, but I'll just plan to meet you at the Museum. Since I'm using your guest ticket Digne; should I meet you in front of the museum--if so, what time? Thanks.
